this is a must read for angela merkel, nicolas sarkozy and dave cameron. now, in my way of thinking he left out some southern european countries that might also have gotten something out of it. but it's easy to see why, you know, after you get a read of it, you know, why so many people need to know what bill knows and how he knew it and what he did with it. in terms of doing it. now, everybody knows that bill spent 53 years at citigroup. now, i've heard over 50, bill, i've heard 55 today, and so we're going to go with over 50. that's a considerable amount of time. and when you think about that time frame and going back, he was a devout disciple of our late and great chairman of, walter riston. walter, again, when you talk about bill and walter, you talk about icons in this field. now, every single treasury secretary would come to see walter riston. and there were problems in argentina, there were problems in your bay, there was problems in peru, there was problems in brazil, there was problems in mexico, there was problems in jamaica, there was problems in panama, and then we go over here, and

of the congress has never even debated immigration reform. let's talk with the angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst. it is kind of interesting, both the president and the congress seem to be interested in getting immigration reform done. >> yes. jon: the question is, what are they going to do with it and there are not a lot of experienced hands on the topic. >> instead of talking about experienced hands, being a former lobbyist they have staffers that are have specialty on immigration law. they can counsel members of the congress and leaders in the party can educate the members the. the challenge the president wants to push it through quickly for political gain. you have members of congress who want to push it through slowly to educate these members on what needs to be done. jon: for instance, marco rubio, the republican senator from florida who has been a leading voice on it from the republican side he has said what the president has put forward is dead on arrival as far as he's concerned when it comes to the senate. >> just like in 2007 when you have the mccain-kennedy bill and then you h
? >> >> angela. >> you said 45 million work hours, what does that equate in terms of the number of jobs and is this layoffs or do it through attrition? >> it equates to 22,500 jobs. right now, the postal service, we run in excess of 10% overtime, almost 12% and we have not hired and using attrition to take advantage of people leaving without having to resort to layoffs. by eliminating overtime and looking at some flexibility we have with the part-time work force and potentially working with the unions on some this will help. since the year 2000, the postal service has reduced approximately 306,000 jobs, people, new layoffs. we do not want to lay off. we are a responsible employer. yes, sir? >> just to follow up on her question, nuts and bolts, 22,500 jobs, how many people get laid off or bought out when? and the second question is in the back of your folder here, you have daily revenue and daily out-go and the revenue exceeds the out-go. so -- >> the revenue doesn't exceed the out-go. $15.9 billion last year. >> not according to your own handout. theuestion is, where's difference? >> l
the party received illegal payments between '97 and 2008 and he received the support from angela merkel say that the spanish government, she had confidence in the spanish government to tackle economic crisis by implementing more economic reforms. that being said, she didn't say more especially on the corruption case as was reported a few days ago. there is a reaction, there was a strong reaction in the bond market. today is a bit more quiet. but for sure, mariano rajoy lost the opposition not only in spain, but also at the european level. it's going to be more difficult for him to perhaps negotiate more time to reduce the spanish deficit and perhaps more difficult for him to ask for insensitive measures to stimulate the economy at the european level. there's a trend on twitter tweeting for the -- the contractions for rajoy reject and that's on the right very well the situation here in spain. since the case, the corruption case was reported by the newspaper a few days ago. rajoy lost six points in the opinion polls in approval ratings. he is now amid 24%. that being said, the leader, the soc
today, i think if you've been listening to angela merkel to david cameron himself and francois hollande this week, the indication is that perhaps we shouldn't be as optimistic as jean-claude juncker would have us believe, but someone has to fly the flag for europe and we like our posturing in europe. overall, what rewe looking at? germany, the uk, the nordic european countries are fighting for cuts, real term cuts in this whereas italy and france would rather have it held steady. even within that, the battle lines aren't clear. the uk and sweden in particular, trying to protect their all important rebates. we've got italy saying that their contribution overall is too great and, of course, as i just mentioned, france very concerned about the agricultural spending that contributes around 40% of the entire eu budget. so as usual, we get a of comments and a lot of the european leaders come to this working out, just how they can negotiate and is walk away, flying their individual flag and saying, hey, i came out with what i asked. but, you know, ultimately, what we've seen in the past is tha
